We closed on the purchase of our 2 bedrooms ocean front condo in Pompano at the end of June 2010. As it was a repossession, owned by the Bank, it had to be extensively renovated. However, as we live in Montreal, we knew no one in South Florida. Fortunately, our real estate broker introduced us to Marco. He took ownership of the project.
The redesign included putting new tiles on all the floors, moving walls, closets and doors, which gave our condo an open concept. It also involved the remake of two bathrooms with the latest look in showers, bath and vanities. In addition, Marco painted the entire condo and did his wonderful faux finis on certain columns, walls and ceilings. Finally, he bought all the furniture and accessories in accordance with our taste.
Marco knew all the best suppliers and got two contractors to bid on the work. Best of all, he was able to get the work done on budget and more surprising, all finished in three months. We have the most beautiful place and it’s all due to Marco.

We are impressed by Marco’s professionalism in the restoration of our residence in Florida.The final product was more than we expected within a reasonable budget.CristinaNEILSON INC, / Siège social
We first met in 2006 when my condo was in desperate need of updating and remodeling. I knew what I wanted but needed someone with taste and skill to put it all together. The design that was created and implemented for me more than exceeded my expectations. Marco not only met my desires and needs, but also created a life style for me with a design that was both classic and timeless. His design choices included from floor to ceiling and everything in between down to the last detail.
Marco created faux finishes that truly are works of art, from Venetian plaster ceilings, Tuscan style wall finishes and warm woods, right down to refinishing my furniture. Although classic in style, everyone who enters my home feels a sense of warmth and comfort.
There is no question the work that was done has dramatically increased the value of my home. I not only got a great design and project, but also gained a wonderful friend whom I will always cherish. I would recommend any one to Marco who truly is looking for far more than the ordinary design within any budget.

I met Marco after seeing some of his fine work that was done in a condo building I manage and call home. I have had the pleasure of working with him on several remodeling projects to our common areas including lobby, community room and pool.
We were offered choices and color schemes that were spectacular! He incorporated a current twist to a classic mid-century design that was in keeping with the vintage of our building and beach lifestyle. The design, color choices and finishes are truly timeless, and all who visits marvel in the details and artistry he brought to our project.
Marco was able to take a blank slate commercial space and transform it into a warm and inviting lobby. His attention to detail extends far into the overall “big picture”. He possesses a vision that puts art into the design while creating an environment you continually want to come home to. There is no doubt that the design has increased our building’s property values. Marco has been a colleague and friend that I repeatedly turn to for advice and creativity for both indoor and outdoor spaces. His faux finish work is surpassed by no one!

The BerkleySouth Condominium Association started a much needed project to renovate and update the large lobby area. Marco was brought in from the beginning discussions to offer concepts and general ideas that would bring the design of building to a much more modern look for the future while incorporating the history and style of the buildings past.
There were safety issues, general design and cost constraints. Marco provided several different concepts working with a Lobby Restoration Committee. Many different ideas and perspective had to to vetted and accommodated. He had great patience in taking us through this process and guiding us to a mutually agreed to design. This was not easy with the diverse views and he handled it in an extraordinary fashion.
Marco managed the design and finishing from start to final completion and was always open to our own ideas. He worked very well with our general contractor, Michael J. Sullivan Construction, and made sure the concepts were turned into reality.
The end result was an amazing lobby that looks current and relevant while still aligning it with the general building structure. Extremely well received by the residence of the building. We still get strong positive reaction to how beautiful our lobby looks.
We were so impressed with the outcome that we hired Marco for our Club Room Kitchen and Elevator Restorations. He extended the Lobby design Concept into the Kitchen and Elevators with the same result. A beautiful design that blends through the building providing a consistent look and feels.
I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.
